Sorry if this has been asked before, but couldn’t find the answer. If I have the explorer card, do I get free bags if I book with chase UR points for part of the ticket and part with the card?

Officially, to use the free checked baggage you must pay with the Explorer card. When you book through Chase travel, you will get charged from Chase Travel and they will use their own corporate card to pay United, so you will not get free checked baggage. You may be able to get the fee waived at check-in if you show them the card and explain the situation, but don't count on it.

Thanks. That's what I was afraid if. They're really been devaluing their card and program, and now on tickets that I want to get they're charging 2x for regular economy vs. basic.

Is there any point in having a non US based address?

Do I need to pay with my united explorer in order to get free baggage or it's enough to be a card holder?

UA is the only airline that makes you pay with it.

Can I make a partial payment with a united card and pay the rest with a different card?
